The Trouble With Turtles: Paleontology at a Crossroads

Scientists debate whether modern turtles are more closely related to snakes and lizards or birds and crocodiles.

by Naomi Lubick

Traditional paleontological research has been upended over the past few decades, as less traditional fields, such as genomics and developmental biology, have weighed in on vertebrate evolution. Researchers have examined the lingering color elements in dinosaur feathers, the genetics of woolly mammoths, purported proteins and blood from dinosaurs, and other ancient fossil signatures using modern tools. But the question of turtle evolution has remained resistant to both traditional and novel methods.

More than 300 species of turtles exist today, but where they came from isn’t entirely clear. Turtles are the last big living vertebrate group to be placed firmly on the tree of life, and the arguments are getting messy. Three fields in particular — paleontology, developmental biology and microbiology/genomics — disagree about how, and from what, turtles may have evolved.

Traditional paleontologists have placed turtles, which are indisputably reptiles, in relation to a group of mostly extinct reptilian animals called anapsids, which don’t have holes in their skulls; however, analyses in the 1990s put turtles in the diapsid camp, which originally had two holes in their skulls, and closer to modern reptiles like snakes. Morphology places them near the group made up of lizards and birds and crocodiles…

christopherpining replied to your post “christopherpining replied to your post:In case anyone dropped SHIELD…”

Wait. What? There were Nat mentions? How could I miss this? Unless you’re talking about the more recent episodes…? (And seriously. Banner? Yay!!)

I can’t remember any specifically (except in the pilot where it’s like blah blah blah Ward is the highest scoring agent since Romanov) but they definitely sort of pepper mentions of her in, which makes sense, she works for SHIELD, they work for SHIELD, although you’d think they’d bring up Clint more by that logic

I don’t know if I told you yet, but I marathoned to catch up (two episodes behind, as of tonight). And 1)that Thor tie-in was worth it just for the Dreamy line and 2)YAY FOR MORE TIE IN AND REFERENCES AND THINGS

That WAS a good line. It was Bruce’s turn to shine tonight after like a dozen mentions of Natasha.

In case anyone dropped SHIELD after the first few episodes thinking it was boring, you weren’t wrong, but now’s a good time to pick it back up. It’s been consistently much better since Cap 2 came out, so much so that it’s obvious that the show has been farting around waiting for the movie and why ABC couldn’t have just given it a midseason premiere (besides the not-really-worthwhile Thor 2 tie-in) is beyond me.

Four Avengers references in one night is a bit much though, even if one was to bring in Cobie Smulders for the rest of the season. (eta: I make it five MCU references including the info that Trip is descended from a Howling Commando, which made me happy and did good for my hopes that he’ll stick around)

The TARDIS is a trending topic in the United States at the moment thanks to a mention on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
